    Reassurances of Czechoslovakian support for the Arab struggle against what he called imperialism were given by the Czechoslovakian Foreign Minister, Mr. Bohuslav Chnoupek, when he arrived in Cairo on Monday (22 January).

    The Czech Foreign Minister was beginning a four-day visit to Egypt.

    He was met at Cairo airport by the Egyptian Foreign Minister, Dr. Hassan el Zayyat, where the two spoke to newsmen.

    Later, the two Foreign Ministers met in the first of what was expected to be a series of conferences.
